Baby Dragon Bar is breathing fire into Newtown’s bustling bar scene

​​If you’re looking to escape the day-to-day, Baby Dragon Bar in Newtown offers an otherworldly escape that’s guaranteed to bring the magic. Stepping into the premises from Newton’s bustling Enmore road feels like entering a luscious oasis. A lifelike cherry blossom tree looms over the bar, and the ethereal décor of rocks, waterfalls and vines will make you feel like you’ve been transported into a lost island paradise. Swap the concrete jungle of the inner city for this immersive tropical haven and embark on a mystical nightlife adventure.

Baby Dragon Bar is the latest venture from Julian Frederick, creator of Sydney's Saga Bar. Joined by wizard mixologist Quinton Seeto and rock'n’roll chef Juan 'Johnny' Neira, the team have dreamed up some menu offerings that evoke some serious island magic.

Cocktails are categorised by the elements of smoke, fire and ice, or a combination thereof. Drinks are mixed with a touch of sorcery, serving up cocktails ablaze or under mesmerising clouds of smoke. Sample a few of Dragon Bar’s signature elixirs – Orange & Java is a fiery concoction that combines Cognac, orange liqueur and Angostura bitters, ignited with glimmering flames before serving. The Smokin’ Old Fashioned is the ultimate storm in a (whisky) cup – a smooth mix of Woodford Reserve bourbon and orange bitters served beneath a bewitching mist of smoke.

When it comes to food, there’s plenty to feast upon with an ever-changing selection of tasty island fare. The fiery menu consists of an arresting array of dishes that combine Classic Eastern and South Eastern Asian flavours. Highlights include the Aztec Honey Chilli Prawns, Karaage Chicken Ribs and syrup-drizzled Laguna Plantation Banana Fritters that will satisfy your sweet tooth. 

Baby Dragon Bar is the perfect spot to drink, dine and discover a tropical fantasy. It's located just a stone’s throw from the city, and you’re bound to feel an entire world away.
